Lost for words
« on: March 19, 2020, 18:54:02 PM »
Twenty people have lost their lives and another 34 people have been placed in intensive care units in Istanbul after drinking isopropyl alcohol (AKA rubbing alcohol) in an attempt to “protect themselves against coronavirus.”

Not just in Turkey.....

More people have now died in Iran's Fars province from alcohol poisoning while trying to protect themselves from the coronavirus than from the disease itself, Iranian media report.

Mohammad Javad Moradian, the director of the province's emergency services centre, told Isna news agency that Covid-19 had killed 13 people in Fars, while 66 have died after drinking industrial-strength alcohol.

A persistent rumour in Iran claims that drinking alcohol helps protect individuals from contracting the virus.


Shocking.

So sad that people believe this sort of rubbish in this day and age.
RIP to those who lost their lives and speedy recovery to those hospitalised
